Dear Generous Partners, In 2019, the SPSCC Foundation awarded more scholarships and grants than ever before. This is a testament to the support and the value our community places in education. As the need to support college students grows, the Washington State Legislature stepped up to provide more tuition funding for low and median-income students through the Washington College Grant starting in 2020. We continue to believe if students want to attend college, financial resources should not stop them – and we applaud the state for increasing access to college for these students. There are costs, however, beyond tuition and books: costs associated with child care, tools, testing fees, and financial emergencies can prevent students from entering or remaining in school through certificate completion or graduation. With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we are helping students pay for home internet access and laptop computers – vital needs as SPSCC classes move to virtual and alternate delivery methods. As we focus on immediate needs of first-time students, we also cannot forget the students who are just above the median-income level but still cannot afford tuition – scholarship support for these students is more important than ever! In the year ahead, we are growing the Foundation to support the growing needs of our students, and we will need your help. We strive to remain proactive, staying ahead of student needs by growing our foundation of support. For over 45 years, donors like you have played a critical role in supporting this growth. Through sound financial decisions, honoring the generosity of our supporters with wise and efficient stewardship, we are able to award over 350 scholarships and over 500 emergency grants every year. We will have to work hard to grow this number to support all first-time all students in the years ahead. Thank you for supporting this work – and we look forward to your continued engagement. Together, through our resources and our resolve, we’re making a critical difference in our community. Together, we’re Making the Sound.

Jason Robertson, SPSCC Foundation Board President

Tanya Mote, SPSCC Foundation Executive Director

Student Success Student Success is the continuum of educational access, retention, and completion. The SPSCC Foundation supports access to college through scholarships and tuition grants. Retention and completion are supported through a variety of grants which are available year-round to students through an online application. Foundation grants include: ∙ The Completion Fund is tuition support for students in their last quarter at SPSCC to ensure they have the funding necessary to graduate. ∙ The Emergency Fund is available to all eligible students experiencing an immediate financial hardship. Grants are available for past due rent, power or utility bills, car repair, medical or child care bills. ∙ The Testing Fund is available to students taking or preparing to take GED® tests for high school equivalency and to assess college readiness. ∙ The Tools & Supplies Fund is for students in programs which require uniforms, equipment, and supplies as part of their course work.  ∙ The Tuition & Books Fund is for students who are experiencing an unexpected financial hardship and need help paying for textbooks or tuition.

Annual Report | 2019


2019 Highlights In December 2019, the SPSCC Foundation moved to the Dr. Angela Bowen Center for Health Education. This building was the largest donation in the Foundation’s history. In 2019 the Foundation also received the largest cash gift ever, a donation of $550,000 from the Eva Gordon Estate. Our community supported event growth through our two largest fundraisers, The Experience and the Clipper Scramble Golf Tournament. College staff and faculty also pitched in; participation in payroll deduction gifts to the SPSCC Foundation increased from 17% to 37% of staff and faculty. Thank you! With these and many other gifts, we’ve been better able to support SPSCC students and the college, including:

∙d  oubling the size of the College Food Pantry; ∙ creating a program to provide emergency grocery and gas gift cards to students; ∙ launching a textbook loan program in partnership with the SPSCC library; and ∙ hosting many SPSCC alumni events.

Many new grants and scholarships were also established last year, including:

∙ Allied Health Emergency Fund; ∙ United Way Emergency Fund; ∙ Architecture, Engineering & Construction Technology (AECT) Scholarship; ∙ Evalyn Poff Memorial Scholarship; ∙ Larson Family Scholarship; ∙ Phil Weigand Memorial Endowed Scholarship for Boys & Girls Clubs; ∙R  ight! Systems Information Technology Endowed Scholarship; and ∙ Vietnamese Community Association of Thurston County Endowed Scholarship.

We are very excited to carry this growth forward into 2020 as we begin a campaign to support Student Success!

COVID-19 Response The outbreak of COVID-19 and its widespread effects required immediate action. For the SPSCC Foundation, it meant canceling many events and focusing all of our efforts on supporting our students in need. Through quick action, the college was able to move classes to virtual or alternate delivery for Spring Quarter 2020. With this change, the SPSCC Foundation received a spike in requests for Emergency Grants to cover laptops and home Internet service. Emergency Grant requests have doubled from an average of 12 to 24 requests per week. As the landscape continues to change, we have seen less technology requests and more requests for rent an utility payment support. Donations to the Emergency Fund have allowed the SPSCC Foundation to be responsive and proactive in helping SPSCC students remain in school during the uncertainty of the COVID-19 outbreak, and your support has been critical. SPSCC students have reached out to us to personally thank you – our donors – for all of your support during this time.

“[Knowing] there’s people that are supporting you was really, really nice to have. Thank you so much!” – Donovan Long “I am one of many first generation students who have been able to step up and continue their journey. I am beyond grateful for all of your kindness. Thank you!” – Tepualini Failauga Annual Report | 2019

The Gallery Renamed in Honor of Leonor R. Fuller On January 24, 2020, the art gallery in the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts was officially renamed to honor former trustee Leonor R. Fuller for her advocacy for arts and education.

“When I found out that the gallery was going to be named after me, I cried.” – Leonor Fuller During her 17 years on the board, Fuller helped guide and support three presidents, worked collaboratively with 11 different trustees, and chaired the board from 2004 to 2006 and 2017 to 2018. Notable college projects which were completed or underway during Fuller’s tenure include the construction of the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts building, the purchase of 54 acres of property for the Center for Continuous Learning at the Hawks Prairie Center, the Health & Wellness Center, and the Craft Brewing & Distilling Center. “The number one rewarding experience [of my tenure] is being part of the evolution of support we have been able to provide our students,” Fuller said. “SPSCC has made it its mission to provide wrap-around services to help students succeed.” ♦

Spotlight on Eva Gordon Leaving a Legacy and Changing Lives in Washington State At the end of 2019, the SPSCC Foundation received the largest cash donation in the College’s history: a gift of approximately $550,000 from the Eva Gordon Estate. SPSCC is one of 17 Washington community and technical colleges to receive a donation totaling nearly $10 million. We’re immensely grateful for this gift from the Gordon Estate.

secretary and as a trading assistant for a Seattle investment firm. Her husband Ed was a Navy pilot turned stockbroker. While the couple had wealth together, they invested their money separately. Through frugal living and investing early in Northwest-based companies like Microsoft, Nordstrom, and Starbucks, Eva grew her money.

A history of lending a hand “Eva had a tremendous heart and liked to A woman ahead of her time throw a rope to help people climb,” said John Eva Gordon, who passed away in June of Jacobs, her godson and a representative for 2018 at the age of 105, was a woman ahead her estate. of her time. She traveled the world with her Her compassion toward those going through brother before she married and did so at a financial struggles was something which time when most women didn’t get to have that reoccurred throughout her life.

“Eva had a tremendous heart and liked to throw a rope to help people climb.” – John Jacobs (Eva’s godson)


Eva and Ed Gordon left nearly $10 million to 17 community and technical colleges in Washington state.

South Puget Sound Community College Foundation

According to her godson, Eva wished later in her life she had attended college. Perhaps knowing she had an unfilled wish—combined with her giving nature—solidified her decision to leave her wealth to colleges so others could pursue their goals of getting an education. Giving the gift of possibility While Eva never attended college, with her planned gift she made it possible for others to have a chance at attaining an education. Through her generous donation, there’s a tremendous opportunity to build momentum toward cultivating student success. This donation provides a base for additional ways to assist students. Because now more than ever, college success looks like more than simply paying tuition. Unlike four year university students, it’s more common for community college students to have families, jobs, and other responsibilities in addition to attending classes to improve their educational or career goals. Those that are first-generation college students are more likely to attend community college, and are often in need of even more assistance to reach graduation. Additionally, many students have needs which extend beyond what is covered under traditional financial aid. In the last two academic years, through donations and partnerships with community organizations, we’ve been able to step up our level of support by implementing wrap-around services on campus and outside of SPSCC. Some of those services include access to an on campus food pantry, emergency funding, and housing assistance. The Foundation is looking to plant a seed which will allow us to support even more students, and while this gift

Annual Report | 2019

from the Eva Gordon Estate will get us started, it’s only one step toward the work we plan to do. Providing support, showing belief Ultimately, a gift like Eva’s not only provides support and enriches lives, it can also bolster confidence. There’s something so powerful in hearing someone say ‘I believe in you.’ Giving a gift which allows someone to go further with their education is a decisive way to show faith in their potential and ability to achieve. From this point forward, scholarship recipients will know that a centenarian woman they never met believed in them and their dream of getting an education. ♦

Planned Giving Make more than a donation. Leave a legacy. Through a planned gift, you or your family can make a meaningful, long-lasting legacy for yourselves and future generations of SPSCC students. A legacy gift is a charitable donation to the college from your estate assets. Often received after one’s lifetime, these gifts are referred to as deferred or planned gifts. A legacy gift allows you to control the use of your gift to benefit your own financial future and take advantage of tax benefits. A legacy gift can include cash, bequests, trusts, stock, life insurance, annuities, and more. The benefits of planned giving include: ∙ Federal income tax charitable deductions ∙ Reduced and deferred capital gains taxes on appreciated property ∙ Reduction of your taxable estate For more information on Planned Giving, contact Mike Christensen.


SPSCC Alumni Impact Elizabeth Glenn, apprentice turned architect at KMB 2003 - Began CAD studies at Elizabeth Glenn didn’t know what she wanted to do after she graduated with the general transfer degree she earned as a Running Start student at Centralia College. She was waiting tables when she found out about the drafting program at SPSCC. Shortly after learning about the program, she decided to move from Lewis County to Olympia to pursue the educational opportunity. ”I didn’t realize I wanted to be an architect when I first started working,” she recalled.

After one year in the CAD studies program she secured an internship with KMB Architects and from there the path to her future career became a lot clearer. Elizabeth has spent her entire professional career at KMB Architects and is now an associate Registered Architect at the firm. Because there’s more than one way to become an architect in Washington, Elizabeth was able to get her license without obtaining further education once she left SPSCC. This apprenticeship method to becoming an architect appealed to her because of the flexibility. “I would have never become an architect if further education was the only path. For me, this was definitely the way to go. I was working and had kids.” Elizabeth is proud to be a part of an organization that is making an impact and improving Thurston County. One of her favorite recent projects is a health and wellness center currently under construction for the Nisqually Indian Tribe. ♦
